Scholarships, Awards, and Study Abroad Opportunities

The School of Physical Education and Tourism Management awards more than 35 scholarships, awards and study-abroad opportunities annually, exceeding $70,000 each year, to current and incoming students enrolled in the kinesiology or tourism, conventions, and event management (TCEM) departments. In general, most applications are due February 1 annually. 

Several scholarships consider financial need when determining eligibility. Students interested in those applications should be sure to submit their FAFSA forms each year, generally in January and February.

Typically, scholarships are applied directly to student Bursar accounts. Scholarships of $1,000 or more are commonly divided in equal amounts between the fall and spring semesters.  Special considerations, including income tax implications, may apply to study abroad travel awards. Sometimes, scholarships may affect financial aid. Students with questions may contact the financial aid office. Students are also encouraged to apply for scholarships available through IUPUI.

The 2015 application deadline has passed.  Scholarship recipients will be notified by early April.
